The feud between Mayor Holliday and the N&R is hilarious. It would be even funnier if the N&R blew just off the news conference. It's only a community relations initiative, for heaven's sake.

I'm still trying to figure what the N&R has done to piss the mayor off. From my point of view, he doesn't seem like the kind of guy that gets worked up easily. As I've written before, I don't think the N&R is that hard on city government.

But I think I have an idea. During last week's city council meeting, the mayor made a point to note that a small percentage (10-some might not consider that small) of the coliseum's deficit was due to getting for $260,000 by the hockey team.

Then I re-read the N&R's coverage of the meeting, and at least two-thirds, if not more, of the article was about the hockey team. That might have something to do with it.
